Bobby Phills could flat out GO. He was just coming into his own as a basketball player too. Tragic ending

Rookie Kyle Anderson hits back-to-back threes for the Spurs, and it's a 104-88 game. Mike Muscala joins Dennis, Kent, Thabo and Pero now.

Yes, it's preseason. But we're up 95-74 after 3 in San Antonio. Now's a good time to buy #ATLOpeningTip tickets: on.nba.com/1s9g3Wx

Love everything about @HeavySmoke239 current avi. Lmao.

Looking to see if those offseason surgeries will get Deron Williams back to an All-Star level or is he in a permanent decline

Lang Greene

Expected more from the Deron Williams and Joe Johnson backcourt.

If you thought our 36-point second quarter was good, how about our 37-point third (so far)? 2:30 left in Q3, and our lead is 20.

Jaryd Wilson

Jeff, Kyle, Paul and Al are now all in double figures halfway through Q3. Our lead is 9.

Jeff was in attack mode in the first half and has 14 points to show for it. Here are the stats: on.nba.com/1wpLTml

Kyle at the buzzer! Nice run by the boys to close the half, and we lead 53-48.

Jaryd Wilson

Active hands for the defense tonight. We've forced 12 turnovers so far, and still 2:56 left in the half. We trail 41-40.

Spurs get the mojo working in Q1 and lead 25-17.

Speaking of Cleveland and lottery reform, any real reform should address the issue of a single team winning top pick in 3 out of 4 drafts.

Buddy Grizzard

Awesome RT @Michael Lee "Still laughing that CLE has won No. 1 pick 4 times in past 11 years & reportedly voted for lottery reform."

Buddy Grizzard

T-Wolves got Zach LaVine and Suns got TJ Warren despite having better records than the Hawks, so keep an eye on that.

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks made playoffs and got to pick behind a Suns team that missed the playoffs but had a significantly better record.

Buddy Grizzard

Lottery tier would be randomized, middle and playoff tier would all pick in reverse order of record.

Buddy Grizzard

So the only purpose of the randomly-sized middle tier is to make it impossible for a team to target a certain record to move up a tier.

Buddy Grizzard

Originally proposed those teams pick in random order within their range. Now I'm thinking those + playoff teams should pick in reverse order

Buddy Grizzard

There should be a random number (3-6 is suggested) of teams that miss playoffs but don't get to participate in the lottery.

Buddy Grizzard

I'm going to call an audible on my lottery reform system hawkshoop.com/wheel-proposal… I think the middle tier should exist but not be randomized.

Slow sale process another sign of Hawks’ ownership woes on-ajc.com/1ouHGi3

Buddy Grizzard

Gearon was perfectly aware of the culture that existed within the Hawks organization and only outed it when he saw a benefit for himself.

Buddy Grizzard

C-Viv says the league may be pressuring all of Hawks ownership to make 100% of the team available. This would be best possible outcome.

Buddy Grizzard

So tanking like the 76ers would have certainly been discouraged by proposed system, but tanking to barely miss playoffs would be rewarded.

Buddy Grizzard

A team that barely missed playoffs would have been given a 400% better chance to climb to the top of the lottery than the current system.

Buddy Grizzard

The league's proposed lottery reform would not have discouraged teams from tanking to miss the playoffs.

Buddy Grizzard

Zach Lowe is correct that Boston has not been a preferred destination for free agents. Usually brought in talent via lopsided trades.

Buddy Grizzard

So, in a round-about way, Garnett's willingness to forgo free agency helped make the trade happen and won Boston a title.

Buddy Grizzard

This was indeed factually incorrect. Kevin Garnett never signed with the Celtics as a free agent. He chose to forgo free agency by extending

Buddy Grizzard

In critiquing that piece, @Zach Lowe countered this statement: "The Celtics have proven to be a desirable destination for free agents."

Buddy Grizzard

Now let's talk about a lottery reform system that addresses real issues, rather than direct talent to large markets: hawkshoop.com/wheel-proposal…

Buddy Grizzard

Good job small market NBA teams not falling for the lottery reform scam. First it was the "Wheel" which was an even more obvious talent grab
